Chief Architect (f/m/d) Event Stream Processing

Job Description

Knowledge for the world of tomorrow.

In order for our society to transition the mobility sector and energy grid to renewable energies, the industry needs to produce battery cells on a terawatt scale. Manufacturing is at the forefront of this revolution to reduce scrap rates, accelerate ramp-ups of new production lines and shorten feedback loops to optimize processes more quickly. 
At Siemens, we build manufacturing from the ground up: from automation controls to large scale distributed systems and analytics which are fundamentally changing the way that batteries are being produced. And we mean fundamentally: our work will cut production times in half and save at least 5 percentage points of scrap for state-of-the-art Gigafactories. 
Join us to work on the next generation of integrated electronics, event stream processing and AI. You will be a part of the Battery Accelerator, an organization of multiple internal start-ups which self-responsibly engage with cell manufacturers worldwide, develop and execute pilots, and take complete ownership of their products. 
You will take responsibility for a data architecture based on event stream processing which will serve as the next level infrastructure to business logic authored by internal start-ups and external customers for the largest Gigafactories in the world.  

What part will you play?
  • Design an event streaming platform (i.e. Apache Flink, Spark, ksqlDB) on top of a distributed messaging system (i.e. Apache Kafka) from state-of-the-art technologies to accommodate shopfloor data architectures with >1000 client devices
  • Lead a team of 15 people with three senior system architects specialized in OT, connectivity, and deployment, and two international dev teams with SCRUM leads for the design, development, testing, and operation of the architecture 
  • Guide the survey of open-source methods, coach, and train the internal software team (including team scale-up) 
  • Define a software roadmap to support the short and long-term implementation of business logic authored by internal start-ups 
  • Align with a chief product owner in the Battery Accelerator who interfaces with the larger product organization within Siemens 
  • Work 50% remote and willingness to travel to Germany for in-person team workshops at least once per quarter 
What you need to make real what matters.
  • 10 years of professional experience in software development for large-scale distributed systems: built and maintained clusters with at least 100 working nodes 
  • Deep practical experience with micro-service architectures, distributed computing (i.e. K8s, Docker), data processing (i.e. Apache Kafka, Flink, Spark, ksqlDB) and API design
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and ability to communicate your reasoning clearly 
  • Fluent and actively coding in program languages such as C, C++, Java, Go, familiar with Linux as development environment 
  • Profound understanding of continuous software engineering practices, architectural design patterns around stream processing (i.e. router, dead letter stream, limited retention) 
  • Enthusiasm to build and scale an architecture hands-on in a fast-paced team 
  • Min 5 years of leadership experience with technical development teams 
  • You are fluent in English. Additional languages (i.e. German) are a plus. 
  • Formal qualifications: excellent university degree or equivalent in the field of computer science
